The Special Consensus
The Special Consensus is another amazing booking for Studio 55 Marin. Their 2012 album "Scratch Gravel Road" was nominated for the Best Bluegrass Album GRAMMY Award. They have been touring nationally and internationally since 1979,
In 1984, The Special Consensus initiated the Traditional American Music (TAM) Program in schools across the country and began appearing on cable television and National Public Radio shows. The band has since appeared on The Nashville Network "Fire On The Mountain" show and released fifteen additional recordings.
The Special Consensus has been featured in cover stories of the renowned bluegrass publication Bluegrass Unlimited in 1998, 2005 and 2010 and several of the band recordings have received Highlight Reviews and appeared on the National Bluegrass Survey chart in that publication. In November 2003, The Special Consensus received a standing ovation after the first band performance on the Grand Ole Opry at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium. International tours have brought The Special Consensus to the United Kingdom, Canada, Europe, Ireland and South America.
Band leader/banjo player Greg Cahill is the former President/Board Chair of the Nashville-based International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) and the Nashville-based Foundation for Bluegrass Music.
